A very nice creamy banana nut flavor that finishes sweet and balanced. It will warm you up. Sweet, yet very drinkable.

Poured this one into a pint glass. Thick, off white head that dissipates quickly, medium lacing. Color is somewhere between copper and brown on the opaque side. Banana bread and malt on the nose. Taste is of citrus, banana, dried fruit, malt, and a little booze with an ever so slightly sour finish. Very smooth carbonation. Catching a very faint spiciness in my sinuses after the finish. Interesting.

Very easy drinking for this level of ABV. No afterburn at all. This one half-threatens to be cloying, but the sweetness stops short of being overbearing. I do like this one. I've had some other beers from this brewery, and I have yet to be truly disappointed by one of their offerings. I'd grab another one of these for sure.

A: Clear and medium-brown with thin bubbly head (3/3)
S: Raisin dominates with a light acrid alcohol smell -- combined it’s almost like root beer(10/12)
T: Raisiny malt dominates at first, but after a couple sips, the flavor is very smooth--almost hard to believe it’s so dark (17/20)
M: Well-carbonated and wet throughout, only a little drying on sides of tongue after a few sips
(5/5)
O: An 8.2% beer that’s this drinkable? Sign me up. Really wish it were less expensive, but nobody’s perfect, and that’s not factoring into my score. (8/10)
43/50

Cold euro bomber, with freshness date, into tulip

Appearance - Glowing opaque and dark brown, massive 2 finger dense head retains well, lots of lacing, looks fantastic

Smell - Smells like spicy banana bread! Delicious.

Feel/Taste - Creamy smooth medium-full body yet crisp and drinkable, plenty of gentle carb to keep things moving. Taste is like nose but more profound: Big, fruity, sweet, and yeasty up front with ripe banana, feint spiciness of clove, fresh baked bread maltiness, some wheaty twang with hints of lemon keep the sweetness in check, a hint of grassy hay. Flavor finishes long with a very slight alcohol warmth, though alcohol is integrated perfectly with no perceived flavor/astringency.

Overall - This beer is an absolutely masterpiece. It is practically liquid spiced banana bread! It's a marvel that the 8.2% ABV is so well integrated, and this beer comes off as so crisp, refreshing, and drinkable still - dangerously drinkable. Truly a world class beer that I very much enjoyed.

A - Soft, hazy brown body. Three inches of heavy, off-white head. Great retention. Pretty, cascading carbonation during the pour.

S - Strong with dark fruits (fig), yeast, and clove. Slight grassy notes, milk chocolate, and maybe leather. Intense and wonderful.

M - Fully-bodied with a slightly heavy finish, but not too sticky (trace of stickiness on the tongue after each sip).

T - Lost of sweet, dark fruits. Coffee grounds and caramel. Grain from the wheat. Subtle grassy hops in the finish.

O - Easy to drink for 8.2% abv and pretty damn tasty.
